Celebrating Spring! Graphic 45 May Pole

Around these parts, Spring is taking it's dear sweet time making it's entrance so I decided to create a little bit of my own.

For this project, I created a May Pole using papers from Graphic 45's Sweet SentimentsSecret Garden, and a sheet of the Cherished paper from their adorable (but retired) Little Darlings collection.

The back wall was created from chipboard and die cut using 
Tim Holtz's Distressed Doily Die. I covered it with the
Little Darlings Cherished paper. The flowers in the 
background were fussy cut from the Sweet Sentiments
paper. The ribbons on the pole were cut from
papers from Secret Garden's 6x6 pad. 

The lovely girls were stamped from the "Clara" stamp
which is part of G45's Nutcracker Sweet Stamp Set #1.
Their dresses were paper pieced using papers from 
Sweet Sentiments and Secret Garden's 6x6 pad. 

The flowers are from Hobby Lobby. The trims and doilies
are from friends.
